Know Your Backyard Birds Better
In this nature walk, we take a look at birds in and around the Puttenahalli Lake, but identify them in a different way! We are going to understand the etymology of bird names and why they are called by that name. This walk is to understand bird identification in a scientific yet unconventional way.
